Jabba's Comments

Hardworking midfielder/defender who made the most of his limited talents by adding a large dose of tenacity and a great work-rate. He scored regularly in the reserves, but was frequently played in a defensive role in the first team and only bagged 3 goals in nearly 90 games. He was capped at U-21 level but picked up an injury on the one occasion he was selected for the full national squad. After his move to Barnsley, he became a real stalwart at Oakwell, and it was only after he broke a leg in 1989 that he started to drop out of the first team, finally leaving for Hull in 1990.

Martin says: I saw him play a few times in the bad early 80 years. I liked him. Very limited talent (these things all being relative) but worked really hard for the time while the likes of George McCluskey etc... did it only when they felt like it. Not in the same class as Mick Bates but for some reason, he reminded me of him.
